Cataract - Cataract

I know now how Charlie Brown felt every time that bitch Lucy would fuck with his 30 yard field goal kicks. Except that bitch is Cataract and the football is their self titled record. "UGH" is the only thing that comes to mind as I listen to this tired and contrived metalcore breakdown crap.

Most of the songs play out like the latest release from Hatebreed, midpaced and boring. The riffs don't stand out enough to grab my attention, and then on top of that they just throw in the generic breakdown riff. The only time my interest is peaked is when they speed up the song a bit, and that's where the Haunted influence comes in. That and vocalist Federico Carminitana sounds a lot like Peter Dolving.

The production is the same type of mix/leveling that you'll find on most modern releases, everything slams and everything pops clearly.

Overall, this record is as mundane and overdone as Linus' blanket.

i liked Golem and Great Days Of Vengeance. I hate when decent bands start to put out crap albums.
